Life 101 - For Adult Contest

I ran here and I ran there
And even for a moment
rested not I anywhere,
I had the riches and all the fun
And basked much under a robust sun,
I knew pain nowhere
And reaped joy everywhere,
There was no task I wouldn't try
To grab wealth I wouldn't shy;

Favored by fate, I was awestruck
Until Time's heavy hand struck!

My body gave up the strife
My spirit longed for a quiet life,
But Life turned its back on me,
Oh, my folly it made me see:

He who's at peace with his share
And leave the worldly woes in God's care,
He who's driven not by his whim
Happy is he, Life is good to him!

    Happy is he who realizes the lesson you've shared here, without the painful experience. Good one, Abdul! Good luck for the contest. :)
